The distorted account of Christian Science...

Muswell Hill Record

The distorted account of Christian Science by a clergyman in his talk to young people, as reported in your recent issue, seems to contain more prejudice than truth or reason. It follows closely upon an address by an authorized speaker on Christian Science, given recently at the same church by invitation of the young people. The first speaker presented in simple terms the fundamental teachings of Christian Science. What was said on that occasion does not in any particular correspond with the clergyman's views on the subject. One is therefore impelled to ask, What does Christian Science really teach? The answer to this question can be found by any unprejudiced reader of the writings of Mary Baker Eddy.

It is proverbial that religious zeal sometimes produces religious intolerance. It would seem as if the clergyman had been caught in this mesh. He derides the healing work done in Christian Science, but in view of the accumulated evidence in its favor Christian Science stands as a potent influence for good health and sound morals. Scores of people testify to this fact in the Christian Science periodicals and at the midweek testimony meetings held in Christian Science churches. These testimonies, which include healing of organic disease, are not brought about by suggestion, mesmerism, blind faith, or emotional ecstasy. They are the natural outcome of the understanding of God, whose laws are exact, scientific, and irrefutable.
